Hospice and Palliative Care Specialist Questions COPD

Why does my mother get lice in her hair even when she's in a hospital?

My mother is a COPD patient and often gets admitted in the hospital. I've noticed that every time that she is in the hospital, she gets lice in her hair. What could be wrong? Why does this keep happening while she's in a hospital setting?

If she continues to go to the same hospital then you may want to reach out to the team at the hospital to share your concerns.
if this happens while she has been to multiple different hospitals then you may want to reach out to her primary physician to seek further guidance.
